It doesn't, actually. Just use open and then fdopen (on unix-ish systems) or
CreateFile (on Win32 systems), etc.
Remember, it's probably only on Unix systems that open and fopen would be
used, anyhow. The other OS's have their own file creation and manipulation
routines that would make more sense to use directly, as is already done in
the Win32 port. Why add another layer (Unix stdio emulation) when it's not
necessary: we just need raw file services...
